Community Manager

Tysons Corner, VA

At theCut, we build technology for the culture. We’re shaping up the barber shop experience, building tools that empower and embolden people to live their best lives. With over 28 million appointments booked, a community of tens of thousands of barbers, and nearly 3 million users, we are the go-to platform for barber shops.

We welcome people from all backgrounds who want the opportunity to create a future where everyone looks and feel their best. We're building a culture that's different from the typical startup, one that resonates with all of the things that are synonymous with urban barbershop culture - sports, music, community, pop culture, etc. If you’re curious, passionate, collaborative, and want to join a culture that challenges you to be the best you, come work with us, and let’s inspire confidence and clean cuts, together.

THE ROLE

Barbers on theCut are incredibly important to us and we're building an outstanding experience for them both online and offline. Community Managers help new and existing barbers build engagement with the platform over time. They provide safe spaces for theCuts to connect, discuss, learn, and grow. Community Managers lead strategic vision and financial performance of all community building initiatives. Your team will go far beyond solving issues; they will identify root causes, call out pervasive problems, develop vendor relationships, be responsible for the launch of new locations, and work on innovative partnerships to improve the overall experience.

Most importantly, you’ll take pride in being the face of theCut to our Barbers, and will treat every interaction as an opportunity to build a better connection between theCut and the barber community. You will work together with the marketing & operations teams to make sure your needs in terms of supply growth, onboarding, barber engagement, and any other local events or needs.
